Small details done today...Replaced the hood and trunk badges with new BMW ones. Changed the cabin microfilter and hopefully reattached the review mirror. Looking at it from the outside it looks like I didn't get quite enough glue on it, so we'll see how it holds up.

I also had the front left quarter repaired and I'm happy to say that I'm quite pleased with the work that the shop did. For the price I expected it wouldn't be very good, but with my untrained eye I can't even tell it's been painted

I'll post a couple of photos in the next couple of days.

No, I just left the car with them and they didn't grumble about finding the paint colour or code

Here's photos of the fender (still have to change the pin striping on the driver's door):





New emblems on the hood and trunk (bonnet and boot for those in Europe )





Some extra leaves and crap that came out when I pulled out the cabin microfilter:



Old micro filter vs new. BLECHT!!!! I'm glad I decided to change it!!!

Collector status achieved!!!

I took the car for a nice drive out to Porteau Cove on Sunday afternoon. I took a couple of pics, but there were too many other people around to get any good photos. I really enjoyed the drive though

Following with quattro's deco thread I've redone my stripes on the trunk and drivers door. The others have been replaced at some point so the original ones on the trunk and particularly the drivers door were sticking out like a sore thumb. I'm not entirely satisfied with the result, but most people won't know the difference.

I'll post pics after I download them from my phone

Took some photos with my camera tonight, so they look better than the ones from the phone

I also did some work on the exhaust tips. They've been annoying me ever since I got the car...
